Every time I read another Susanna Kearsley book, I fall more and more in love with her writing. Her stories are so amazing! Mariana pulled me in from the first page and did not let go. I loved the romance and the history and I loved how Kearsley pulled in the whole idea of reincarnation. The end was beautiful and so surprising. I did not see it coming at all but the fact that it was a surprise made the end even better. 5 stars.
I want to be Jen Lancaster's BFF. She is one of the funniest people out there. I have read all of her memoirs and this one is just as hysterical as the rest. Reading about her attempts to follow Martha Stewart's way of life was so fun and I found myself laughing out loud a couple of times. There was also a more serious side to this book and some of the events left me in tears. I highly recommend this book if you are looking for a funny, snarky read. 4 stars.
This is my new favorite Susanna Kearsley book. There was just something about the story that spoke to me and swept me away. I think this is the first book I've read by her that involved time travel and I think that gave it a unique twist. I loved all the characters and the relationship between Eva and Daniel was completely swoonworthy. I swear that nobody can write romance the way that Kearsley can! 5 stars.
